Bailey studies up on his RADAR skills

My sister’s sheltie, Bailey, is a rather experienced sailor– he and his “parents” have just left their summer land berth near Annapolis for another venture down the Atlantic coast and a winter in the Bahamas.

Not to shabby a life.

I am hoping to catch up with them again in the Spring like I did last year — if Bailey will let me on board.

I’m rather proud of my “little/big” sister (little cause she is smaller, big cause she is older) who has seriously taken up blogging/flickr posting/google mapping to record their travel and stay in touch with friends… wow, sailors are really a connected network on many levels- she gets more regular comments than I do! Like a good blogger, Harriet is compulsive to post, not always easy when the internet is spotting.

I am hoping when I see him in the Spring, that Bailey can explain radar to me….

An early 90s builder of the web and blogging Alan Levine barks at on web storytelling (#ds106 #4life), photography, bending WordPress, and serendipity in the infinite internet river. He thinks it's weird to write about himself in the third person.


  1. Maybe your sis would consider geotagging her photos now that she is a blogging an flickr pro. They could do some cool mapping mashups of their trips.

  2. The fancy way is getting an expensive camera with GPS that does this automatically; other people do it by carring a portable GPS tracker, and use software that can sync the time of a location to the time you took a picture.

    However, the easiest way, and what I recommend, sis, is to use flickr’s built in map tools. If you click on the Organize link on the top and go to map, you can select a whole batch of photos, find a location on the map that matches where you took them, and drop them into the map location– this adds geo location to all the photos, and then you can create a map view of all your photos.
